Welcome to PixelFunder! It’s great to have you onboard so let’s kick off with some introductions!
Well, we’re much more than a crowdfunding platform. PixelFunder is all about the indie game culture which we all know is one of the most passionate and positive gaming communities out there. We foster that energy and grow it in our PixelFunder forum, a great place to talk to developers about their work in progress, talk through some of your own game ideas and ask for advice and, of course, talk about the games we are all excited about! Without your help, the games can’t reach their goals - and that would mean depriving the world of these wonderful titles, which is obviously a crime in itself!
But wait, there’s more! Here on PixelFunder we have our own currency, which you get for performing certain actions on the site. Daily login, helping your PixelFunder peers and backing games are just a few of the ways you can accumulate your sky high stacks of coins. You can exchange that hard work for goodies in the merch store!
How do I sign up?
Well it’s pretty easy but here’s a quick step-by-step so you don’t get lost in the ethereal internet space.
2. Pick a nice username, go on, something exciting and enticing. And by enticing, we mean don’t include bad language in any way, shape or form. That is not enticing at all… We’ll need you to pop your email address in there as well so we can make sure you aren’t a robot and get you all verified up. We do like robots but not the spammy kind. And finally, chose whether you’re a developer or backer. You can be both of course, but if you are we suggest selecting developer - it won’t stop you from backing projects!
3. OK, so that’s all done, an email is winging its way to your inbox where you can click the link and get verified. You can check out some of the latest topics and chatter on the forum while you wait!
4. Now that you’re all registered and verified, go ahead and fill out your profile to your heart’s content. You can have a custom avatar, bio and share your gamertags too! When uploading images, please ensure you are not uploading anything that could be considered questionable or we’ll have to take steps to remove it and possible ban your account.
